The Big Bang Theory continues into its sixth season and for the most part, its a positive one. Howard and Bernadette being married adds a new flavor, there are less awkward Amy/Penny ideas thrown in (Series 5 painting for example) and the whole Penny/Leonard will they?/won't they? has settled down so other elements of the series can be focused upon. It's still funny, there's some great episodes and ideas thrown in, Episode 8: The 43 peculiarity has more of an old-style Big Bang feel with the five core members going it alone and it benefits.

Several new dynamics also help the series avoid a pattern of diminishing returns. Howard in space provides some of the funniest scenes in the season for a start. Among the best additions to the series come in two new characters, Sheldon's assistant Alex who has won some of the fanbase over as a better match with Leonard than Penny - but that's later. The other who comes in at the latter end of the season is Raj's girlfriend Lucy. Lucy is one of the most interesting characters shown so far, socially awkward, timid but well-meaning and the two have quite poignant scenes together as they both have social anxiety issues. Combine that with some very creative episodes such as The Bakersfield Expedition where the guys are stranded on the way to Comic Con, The Closet Reconfiguration which hits a new level of depth concerning a letter from Howard's anonymous father. and others.

But Series 6 also has its problems. The dynamic between Penny and Leonard is not only tired and getting increasingly dull, but the relationship is one more spurned by jealously (Penny considers breaking up with him and then competition arrives in the form of Alex and she's interested).

The geeks are taking over. At least they are taking over prime time comedy as The Big Bang Theory continues to be the highest rated comedy even in its sixth season. And there is a big reason for that. Each episode continues to be filled with big laughs.

The show centers around the lives of four socially awkward scientists. Sheldon (Jim Parsons) must have everything done his way. Leonard (Johnny Galecki) is Sheldon’s long suffering roommate. There’s Howard (Simon Helberg), the non-PhD of the guys in the group, whose work in physics gets him involved with NASA. Rounding out the guys is Raj (Kunal Nayyar), a brilliant scientist who can’t talk to women while sober.

The females in the cast are almost as bad. That’s especially true of Amy Ferrah-Fowler (Mayim Bialik), Sheldon’s neurologist girlfriend. At the end of the last season Howard married Bernadette (Melissa Rauch), another scientist. The only non-scientist in the cast is Penny (Kaley Cuoco), an aspiring actress (ie waitress at the Cheesecake Factory) who is dating Leonard.

As the season opens, Howard is still in space on his mission with NASA. They actually have him up there for several episodes involved in a sub-plot via Skype. During this time, Stuart (Kevin Sussman) from the comic book store starts to hang out with the gang a bit more.

Once Howard returns to Earth, his ego needs to come back down to size, and he and Sheldon get in a fight over a parking space at Cal Tech, where the guys all work, even though Sheldon doesn’t drive. Penny continues to doubt her relationship with Leonard. And Amy continues to push Sheldon for more from their relationship. Speaking of relationships, even Raj finds a girlfriend near the end of the season.

The best Big Bang Theory season of them all, season 7 was ok, but season 8 has been a bit hit and miss so far. Season 6 is the most funniest with Sheldon being the main star, I just love the episode when Sheldon argued with Howard about his parking bay, plus when Howard goes to space was very funny, even through this for me has been the best series, I still love all the big bangs they are brilliant.

For many years it was my opinion that the best comedy series ever was Frazier - an excellent cast, great script and near impossible to find a duff episode in 11 long series. Brilliant to the end. And then along came The Big Bang theory. Excellent cast, great script and at series 6 still not running out of ideas. Ho to choose between them? I can't. And in neither series does an episode start with a voiceover of "contains adult humour and strong language..." the guarantee of a comedy thin on ideas, poorly written with actors too hard up to turn the work down that I know I will turn off within 10 excruciatingly embarrassing minutes never to return to.

But back to The Big Bang Theory. With Kaley Cuoco in every episode what what more recommendation does a red-blooded man need?

(No, I'm not insane, my mother had me tested).

I love having The Big Bang Theory DVDs as this means I can watch it when I want and watch whatever episode(s) at any time. Perfect if you just need a quick laugh as the episodes are about 20 minutes long but pack a lot of things into one episode.

Things that are specific to Series 6 include Howard's adventures in space, Leonard and Penny's relationship goes through the usual ups-and-downs whilst even Sheldon and Amy's relationship progresses (which is nice and weird at the same time), Sheldon gets a new (female) assistant Alex and Raj meets a girl who has social anxiety issues. I like the fact that whilst the characters have clearly evolved during the six series, they do still stay somewhat true to what they started as - Sheldon especially still has the ability to make me laugh over some of his mannerisms. But there's plenty of laughs in each episode (24 in total). As per the other series, this has three discs in one box and there's some decent extras for those who watch the extras.

All in all, a good buy for anyone who loves this show, especially if you already have the other five series.
